Monday, April 7th, 7 PM  Creston Women's Club meeting, held at the mobile home next to the NEW  Community Center, on Swayze Street,  next to the Community Volunteer Garden.

   Saturday,  April 12th,  9 AM til ???   GIANT  plant and shrub and tree and bush and flower and natives SALE  plus an enormous BAKE SALE, including home made pies, biscotti, etc,  held at the Community Volunteer Garden and hosted by the Creston Garden Club. Proceeds to be used to improve the landscaping around the NEW Community Center, plus routine maintenance and improvements ( read: ID markers ! ) of our beloved "demonstration" garden, founded by Pat and Jim Fairchild back in the early 90's, when that was an abandoned weed patch!!

Wednesday  April 16th  7 PM  Creston Advisory Body Meeting at the new Church Sanctuary. This meeting is very important.  I heard on KPRL News AM 1230 today that there is a  proposal to widen La Panza Road between Ryan Road and Hord Valley Road.  This is the type of construction that may be discussed at this CAB meeting, along with the usual  WATER   ISSUE  !!  This meeting is your chance to bring up any Creston issue that involves the COUNTY  !  A representative from the SLO County Board of Supervisors always attends these meetings ! And, this person gives a short report on County issues affecting the greater Creston area.  An agenda will be posted two or three days before the meeting on the Community Bulletin Board in front of the Post Office.

There will not be a Garden Club meeting this month due to the ENORMOUS plant and bake sale.

Friday,  April 25th  from 5 pm - 8 PM   Annual ( like 24 years at least )  Spaghetti Feed hosted by the Women's Club at the Elementary School's Cafeteria (Multi-Purpose Room) on Adams Street.  Cost is about $10 for adults ( don't quote me! ) and about $5 for kids.  Desserts ( mostly home made ) are sold for $1 each. Hot and cold drinks are included.  This event kicks off the Annual Wildflower Bicycle Ride which begins and ends downtown Creston. Over 1200 bicycle riders from all over the West Coast will ride for 50.  75. or 100 miles, including down Hwy 58 to  Shell Creek road with lunch being served in Shandon !

Saturday, April 26th starting around noon,  the Creston Volunteer Fire Department will be hosting the enormous (think nearly 1300 people)  Barbeque on the grass of the Elementary School.  Let's pray for good weather!  I know that this is not a good year for wildflowers, due to the weird rainfall pattern, but, this is an enormous fund raiser for our brave Volunteer Fire Fighters.  If you would like to help serve the (mostly) skinny and fit men and women wearing bicycle riding clothing and smiling and happy because they are in the COUNTRY, please call Bruce or Rosie at  238-1662.  They need at least 15 people to help serve, from about noon until about 4 or 5 PM. Free swag to all the volunteers.
If your club has an activity that you would like to post here, please call Ann at 438-3543 or email her directly  at   ""      Thanks
